So much has changed so quickly. And if any of you are confused or scared or angry—or just plain overwhelmed—I just want you to know that you aren’t alone. I am feeling all that, too. And I have a few things I want to say about it. youtube.com/watch?v=VXDTmA…

An important step! What if we let crisis counselors and therapists and other practitioners do their job — rather than passing it off to police to do? This is part of what #DefundPolice means. citypages.com/news/minneapol…

We deserve a world where Black people are safe & we know that can’t happen until we move beyond policing. There are a host of strategies to get us to abolition currently being pursued. I've never been more confident that we will get there. medium.com/@deray/on-the-…

One year ago today #LayleenPolanco was killed by Rikers Island prison guards because she could not afford to pay bail. In her name, we will create a world without prisons jails and detention centers. A world where the health and safety of Black trans women is valued.

Defund the police. The money they receive should be moved to the community programs that keep our communities healthy and safe, as I share below. We reduce harm immediately. But ultimately, we can live without police. America has abolished racist systems before. We can, too. twitter.com/mspackyetti/st…

We call for an END to systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken. See the demands. Sign the petition. #DefundThePolice #blacklivesmatter bit.ly/3gGe3qU

We stand together with @Mvmnt4BlkLives. Overfunding the police leads to mass incarceration and a lack of resources for the things that matter: housing, education and healthcare. When we redirect funding, lives improve. #DefundPolice #BlackLivesMatter

Disability is a natural part of the human condition. Using these metaphors to describe inaction subtly reinforces that racism in our systems and in our communities is inherent. It’s not. It’s a choice. Say: People refused to act. People chose to maintain the status quo. 2/2 #BLM
Retweeted by AmyPoehlerSmartGirls
Anyone talking about the injustices connected to the murder of #BreonaTaylor, #GeorgeFloyd, & far too many others - I don’t want to see that leaders had “blind spots” or calls for change “fell on deaf ears.” Or any other disability metaphor to describe intransigence. 1/2

Morning. This is why we have to educate ourselves. The DATA that #PeoplesBudgetLA very clearly lays out what protestors & organizers have been saying for a while: MORE POLICE DOES NOT MEAN SAFER STREETS. In fact?

My Q to President Trump just now: Overall, U.S. unemployment rate fell by 1 %. Black unemployment rate went up .1%. Asian American rate went up by .5%. How is that a victory? His response to me: “You are something.” Note: It’s a crucial question.

Incredible. WH made reporters, including myself, sit *closer together* at the president's remarks in the Rose Garden today and *violate the federal government's social distancing policy for the pandemic* because they thought the seating arrangement "looks better." From @whca:

In our @MBK_Alliance town hall yesterday, I mentioned James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time. From 1962, it remains a seminal meditation on race by one of our greatest writers and relevant for understanding the pain and anger behind the protests. Excerpt: newyorker.com/magazine/1962/…

The officers who murdered Breonna Taylor nearly three months ago still have not been charged. We can’t forget about Black women in our quest for justice.

Today we intrdcd a motion to cut funding to the LAPD, as we reset our priorities in the wake of the murder of #GeorgeFloyd & the #BlackLivesMatter call that we all support to end racism. This is just one small step. We cannot talk about change, we have to be about change.
